Lest you all think I am some sort of crazy knitting machine, this is not actually a recent finished object—just one I’d been keeping under wraps until I could share the pattern!

Cashmere and lace, what could be better?

(This is Ellen. She is not a knitter but doesn’t mind being forced to wear cowls in late August when it is super hot outside.)

Actually, what’s better is that you can knit this cowl in the super soft cashmere it calls for without breaking the bank; one 25g skein (all you need!) is less than ten bucks. I mean, come on. This much luxury for so little a cost? It’s awesome, is what it is. And if you’re prowling around for a last minute gift, this should only take a few evenings of dedicated knitting to complete.

(This is Dorothy. She is a knitter, and thus understands the necessity of wearing a cowl in late August when it’s super hot outside and there’s no air conditioning inside.)

The one downside to this cowl is that it gets caught on my lipring if I’m not careful when I pull it over my head. But most of you shouldn’t have that problem ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pattern: Quill (by me!)
Yarn: The Knitting Goddess Laceweight Cashmere small skein in charcoal, one skein
Needles: US3/3.25mm Addi Turbos
